Boise Bicycle Project (501c3)
The Boise Bicycle Project (BBP) is a nonprofit bicycle cooperative that promotes the personal, social, and environmental benefits of bicycling. It functions as a bicycle recycling center as well as an educational workspace in a diverse and non-threatening atmosphere. Through education and access to quality affordable bicycles, BBP strives to build a stronger bicycling community.
We believe Boise has the potential to be the “Bicycle Capital of America.” To us that means a community in which every citizen has access to a bicycle, bicycle repair, and the resources needed for safe and effective connections throughout. By working passionately toward this vision we hope to establish a lasting bicycle entity that creates access to other opportunities for growth and empowerment in Boise and beyond.
The BBP Experience
The legacy we’ve created. The environment we strive to foster everyday. Our hope for our community going forward.
When you enter our doors, you have entered a place of community. Everyone is welcome to get their hands dirty, and all bikes belong.
Once inside, we will work together to connect you to where you need to go. By sharing tools, knowledge, and experiences in a cooperative space, we can learn from each other and remove barriers that block opportunities.
When you exit our doors you leave empowered with the resources and confidence to engage in other opportunities. Through pedal-power and people-power, we can build the community we want to live and ride in.
